HOBOKEN, NJ – The Summer Institute for the Gifted (SIG), one of the nation's leading gifted summer programs, will be launching a day program for gifted students at The Hudson School beginning in the summer of 2011.
The program at The Hudson School will run from July 11 through July 29, 2011, and will be open to academically gifted and talented students ages 6 to 14.
Students choose three courses, selecting from nearly 30 academic, art and recreational classes that meet daily. The cost for the week program is $1,995.
"We are excited to welcome The Hudson School into the SIG family, one of sixteen SIG day sessions offered in 2011," states Barbara Swicord, President and CEO of SIG. "We are proud to host our program at this innovative independent school in Hoboken and anticipate it being one of our most popular."
The Hudson School day program begins daily at 8:30am and concludes at 4pm with extended drop-off and pick-up times available. Interested families can attend the Open House on January 8 at The Hudson School to better acquaint both parents and students with SIG.
In addition to the day program offered this summer, SIG will also host their Saturday Program at The Hudson School this winter for students in grades 1 through 6. Classes will run on Saturdays from 9am to 2pm from January 22 through February 12.
